Something strange is happening in Arkansas. Last week more than 5000 birds fell from the sky over Beebe, Arkansas. The day before, near the city of Ozark, over 80,000 dead fish washed up on the shores of the Arkansas River which is about 125 miles away from Beebe.
Officials are scratching their heads trying to figure out what the heck is going on. Clean up crews wore Hazmat suits to clean up the birds, just as a precaution. Poisoning was not suspected because other animals that feasted on the birds have shown no signs of illness.
Usually when strange events such as these occur, the media rush out to interview the dumbest person they can find to get the most ridiculous quote (think back to Katrina and all the people they interviewed) possible. Because the events took place in Arkansas, ridiculous quotes are like shooting fish in a barrel.
“I’ve been to Iraq and back and not seen nothing like this,” Beebe resident Jeff Drennan told the local Fox News affiliate.
The experts might not know what is happening but I do, I read Stephen King and he laid all this out there last year when he published Under the Dome.
In a nutshell a huge dome is placed over a a small town in Maine. I’ve forgotten why it was placed there or who placed it but that wasn’t what the book was about. It was about what happens when people are isolated, how they behave, what happens to the law and justice and all that stuff.
I also forgot how the dome got lifted except I do remember a big explosion. It was a great read, just because I can’t remember it doesn’t mean it isn’t worth reading. It also makes a great doorstop since it is a mammoth book. Oh, and cats don’t like it when you throw it at them in the middle of the night because they keep bugging you for something at 2am, either.
I promise you the experts won’t have any answer about what happened. Of the birds that have been tested so far they are showing signs of blunt force trauma. Think about that, 5000 birds hit something. The only explanation is a dome placed over Arkansas by our government or aliens. My guess, it was aliens. If our Government had the technology to place a dome over a city I’m sure our current administration would put a lid on Alaska (provided Sarah Palin was home at the time).
It had to be aliens.
Why would aliens want to dome off Arkansas?
It’s just more efficient to dome off a city in Arkansas than reabducting all those people for the follow up tests.
It’s Aliens. It has to be.
But I always want it to be aliens though so don’t go by me (-:
I always want it to be aliens too but the government comes along and makes it look like something else happened….but we know better don’t we?
And all those Arkansans are waiting for their follow-up tests. You know they are waiting. What a shame.
p.s. My advance apologies to any Arkansans reading this blog.
p.p.s. I love Arkansas.
p.s. My advance apologies to any Arkansans reading this blog.
Do you really think anyone from Arkansas is reading this blog?
P.S. I don’t have anything against people from Arkansas and based on my past geographical posts it is a good bet I couldn’t locate it on a map, it’s probably near More Texas or something.
I know at least two people from Arkansas you’re not all that fond of. Think cigars.
I have nothing against Mr. and Mrs. Clinton. True I wasn’t too fond of Hillary when she was first lady but that’s because she didn’t kick her husband to the curb for the cigar incident. If she had we might have been able to avoid that whole impeachment thing. I have found new respect for her since the last election and even though I really don’t know what she has been doing in her new role of Sec. of State she doesn’t seem to be doing any harm. Mr. Clinton is nothing but charming, it’s just not possible to not like him. But I would have still kicked him to the curb.
just heard about this today! so sickening….it is really crazy.
Were there any severed woodchucks? ‘Cause that would make it definitive. Severed woodchucks = alien dome.
I haven’t seen anything about severed woodchucks but I bet they’re our there, no one has bothered to look and woodchucks are kinda small and blend in with their surroundings. It’s just a matter of time, something will be in the papers tomorrow about the woodchucks.
I’m so glad you wrote about this. I think you’ve nailed it. What else could explain this weirdness? And they were cute little red-winged blackbirds, too. My favorite. Maybe the aliens will just suck the whole damn state up into their ship and take it away.
If we are lucky, and Alaska too.
That book is beyond amazing! It does sound like a dome went up! I was in the middle of reading that book on my kindle in our blizzard last year. I felt like I was freaking in the book since we had no power for 3 days. INSANE.
It’s amazing what being cut off from the rest of the world will make you do. Snowstorms can be no different especially if no one comes to plow you out for three days.
Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. I think Assange and his info-thieves have enough trouble with mortal authorities down here without attracting the ire of higher powers!
I loved that post and kudos to you for having the balls to say it. God knows none of the other media had the courage to speak up against him.
Since I live a few miles, short miles from Beebe, it is strange, to say the least. Last year at Christmas, that same part of town flooded badly, and some of the homes in the Windwood subdivision were a total loss. Now, birds fall out of the night sky and upstream a bit, a gazillion worthless fish wash up dead. I’m sure the tests will say nothing, and that the ongoing investigation will come up with nothing. That’s just how it goes.
I bought the e version of Under the Dome, so didn’t know it was that big of a book. Stephen King is always a weapon, ain’t he?
Keep your eyes out for severed woodchucks because that makes it official.
Yes, Stephen King books make a great weapon, just ask my cat.
I heard that all those birds got scared shitless by all them new years fireworks. Not aliens, but humans are to blame. We totally suck.
Nope that wasn’t it. The autopsied birds had blunt force trauma, they hit
something, like an invisible dome or something hit them.
Blunt force trauma, huh? Was that caused by them hitting the ground?
Or maybe….the ground hit them…?????
Why are you taking all my fun away?
oh, when I said they hit the ground, I meant the ground in the sense of a dome-like construct, invisible to the human eye.
Wow. That’s totally bazaar and scary. Blunt, Force, Trauma to 5,000 birds? Maybe it IS aliens.
There is no MAYBE about it, it most definitely is aliens. Giorgio Tsoukalos is gonna be all over this one.
Arkansas is fine. The birds got hit by lightning and the fish were acting fishy. It just goes to show you what happens when you go against religion in places like that.
I’ve been thinking about this comment since last night and I can’t make heads or tails of it. I do know the birds were not hit by lightening. I don’t know about the fish, and no one seems to really care about them but the birds are strange. Aliens, I’m telling you.
Bird and fish hating aliens? Surely you jest! There have to be a lot better things to kill in Arkansas. And only one kind of fish? Come on Jen. It’s not adding up.
It is because it was only one kind of fish and one kind of bird that adds credence to the alien theory. If it was an accident or man made deal different birds and fish would have died. I don’t think the aliens hate the birds or the fish, they were just collateral damage. The aliens want to better probe the humans and what better way to do that than to round them all up under an invisible dome? Arkansas isn’t the kind of place our government is likely to get to worked up about if it goes missing so much better than placing NY under the dome.
Honey and Harry snatch flies out of the air, kill them and leave their little fly corpses around my house but not in the thousands. Okay, Jen, I’m with you Sweetheart. It’s aliens. Or Mayans getting ready for the big day in 2012. Or men in black. One or the other.
Welcome to the Dark Side, Linda.
I’d forgotten all about the Mayans. I’m not sure where they fit into this
mess but I bet the do somehow. There are no coincidences.
It’s a giant snowglobe. I’ve always felt like I was in a snowglobe. Let me the f%^k out! Those birds are in my front and back yard at least every month. My end is coming. I can feel it!
Are you in Arkansas?
Because Princess Gail is all about birds, we have been following this story with interest. Blunt force trauma from hitting a dome! Poor unsuspecting blackbirds! (Hm. Maybe it was a racial, hate crime kind of thing.) In any case, damn those aliens!!
I’ll be checking Amazon for a copy of Under the Dome. It sounds like a really useful book! 😉
It really is a great book, it reminded me of The Stand but wasn’t quite as
epic as that book, or as good for that matter. But it was a great read and
one of his better books in my opinion in a long time. It’s one of the few
that I would read again and I was sad when it ended, so all in all it was
Well after that little review, maybe I’ll read it, too! I was thinking more about it’s practical uses as a doorstop and shooing the cat in the middle of the night! 🙂
Oh, well those two uses are worth the cost of the book right there. I have the paperback and that weighs at least ten pounds so imagine what the hardcover is like when it lands near an aggravating cat?
If this is the work of aliens they’re clearly intelligent since they chose to block off Arkansas. They’re probably doing Darwin’s work in an effort to stop the inbreeding.
In fact I’ll bet there’s a bumper sticker on the back of the spaceship that says, “Kentucky or Bust!”
I like your logic CG but seems to me if you place a dome over a place that already inbreeds there will just be more of it. Unless there are a lot of sheep under the dome too.
I loved “Under The Dome”! I really had heard about the birds until a friend mentioned it. I’ve kind of been in a news free zone of late.
I don’t pay much attention either but the birds and fish just jumped out at me. I do watch the news but it seems to me it’s the same stuff day in and day out so none of it really stays with me.
Darn it all! I bought Under the Dome and haven’t read it yet. You have to post spoiler alerts. Now I am going to have to wait until I forget what I read here before I read it. 🙂
I’m pretty sure I didn’t give anything away that the cover of the book didn’t already show. Besides, all Stephen King books have the same formula so you already know more than I could ever tell you. It’s worth the read and will be even better since birds are falling from the sky in Arkansas.
Now you really ruined it for me. Stephen King has a formula?! The book has a cover!?
Maybe God farted? Beats me.
I just blame the government. I’m right 95 percent of the time using that tactic. 🙂
If the cause of the birds and fish dying were because God farted I think we would see this kind of thing more often. The average person farts at least 14 times a day (my son a whole lot more) and even though we can argue that God is not an average person if he has gas once he probably has it 14 times a day like everyone else. Being God he could certainly get rid of gas which he has chosen not to for whatever reason, probably because it amuses my son and his friends so much. So since he hasn’t done away with farting he probably does it too and certainly more than once a decade or century.
Certainly our government can be blamed but I don’t think they are smart enough to do something as sophisticated as an invisible dome. If they could you’d think they could do something about Snookie and clearly they haven’t.
Saw this on our news. It just has to be down to humans. Humans ruin everything. I sometimes think humans ARE aliens. Oh my, I bet they’ve been infiltrating us since Roswell!
Aliens… always the best answer! (Followed closely by zombies.)
I hadn’t thought of zombies but you make a good point. However, I don’t
think zombies are fast enough to install an invisible dome. Someone would
have seen them doing it. Aliens can shape shift and turn
invisible, obviously since they have been coming down here since at least
the 50’s and some say a lot longer, and we haven’t seen them yet. Besides,
the zombies would have eaten the dead fish and birds.
I am sure I am going to offend someone, but I would dome off Arkansas in a second. How was Fox News able to get in to find the dumbest person if Arkansas has been domed? I will have to get that book. I need something to throw at the cat when he starts scratching at the door in the middle of the night.
It was an affiliate of Fox, they were already there so they haven’t noticed that they can’t get out. I just read that a similar thing happened with birds in LA today and I read that some military guy who was going to blow the whistle on this whole thing was found dead in a dumpster. You can’t make this stuff up.
Your theory makes as much sense as what the “officials” are putting out there about fireworks causing internal blood clots. Personally, I think they are testing biological weapons that only kill birds and fish so we can starve the Canadians when we invade their borders.
I’ve not seen nothing like this too! Bwaa haaa!!!! I say it is the end of the world for sure. Dead fish, dead birds… oh yea!
Our government is capable of anything. If China can shoot a missile off the coast of California and the government acts like it’s nothing then they are capable of anything. Instead of Sarah Palin can we do San Francisco and Nancy Pelosi? She’s really creepy.
Have a terrific day. 🙂
I just saw this on the news! How freaky, but I think you may have hit the nail on the head. They’ve been domed!!!!
I’ve always wondered how Stephen King writes such huge books. How long does it take to right such a tome? I haven’t read him in a long time. I read Pet Sematary and it scared the living crap out of me. Haven’t read him since.
